The Character (not of a High Church., nor Low Church, nor Moderate Church, but) of a True Church of Englant. Man.

I, A Church of England Man is one that heartily, and effeétually Believes in God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and leads to regular a Christian Life, that he has a Right to, and is Qualify'd for, and live's in constant actual Communion with the Church of England, and is zealous to communicate in all her Publick' Religious Offices, Prayers , Reading , Praises, and Sacraments; not only on Sundays but also on all the Ferts and Fasts, and other folemn Days appointed by the Church, as well when there is not, as when there is a Sermon, 2, A Church-Man is one who is true to the Interest both of Church and State as by Law estabilhed; I say, both Church and Siate; for i: has ever been, and I hope always will be the Glory of the Church of England that all her True Sons are very Loyal Subjects. The Church of England teaches her sons, when they observe any Defects in their Governors, E :clefiaftical or Civil, to conceal, lament, and excule them, and all out of a Dutiful Regard to the Character they bear. But to expose Failings where they are, or to make, em where they are not, God be thanked , was never any part of the spirit of our Church. It always instillid more Loyal and Religious Lessons. 3, A Church of Engiand Man is one who takes the Measures of his Bebavior, as a son of the Church, from the Rule that our Church her self has laid down for Jiis Direction, in her Liturgy and Rubrick , her Articles, Homilies and Cannons. This, as grounded in Scripture,our great Rule, is the Path that our Constitution has mark'd out; and they who walk in it (that is, who worship God, and obey their Superiors in such a manner as these prescribe, ) are truly, Church-Men. 4; A Church Man is one who governs himself hy Principle, and not by th' uncertain rurns of Humor, or Interest. "He will not be zealous for Monarchy and Epifcopacy at one time, and at another fall in with measures for diminishing the just Prerogative, and depresling his Ecclesiastical Superiors. Nor will he turn Advocate for the popular Election of Bishops, when he finds his Aims not so likely to fucceed at Court. In short a Church-Man is uniform under all Governments; and is not to be drawn by private Animofiries and Resentments from pursuing Methods that really are . aid himself has all along declared to be, the supports of our

Constitution

Conftitution, and he Foundation of Peace and Order in Church and Stute. S, A Church of England. Man muft signify one who is for preserving th' Essential Constitution of the Church. Now the Conftitution of the Church of England is the same that has been the constitution of the Catholick Churchever since th' Apoftolick Age, or as long as we bave any Authentick Records of the Church ;' that is, The Government of he Church is in Bishops, withi Presbyters and Deacons under’em. Ours is a National Church, and divided into two Provinces; each Province has a Metropolitan, with a Superior Jurisdiction over all the Bishops and Clergy of his Province ; which some think an Apostolical, but, it is certain, is a very ancieat conftitution of the Catholick Church.

Jepson, fear thou the LORD, and the King: and meddle not with them that are given to change. Prov, 24. 21.
